Elvis Presley's current run of weekly appearances in the top ten on the UK singles sales charts wraps up with A Little Less Conversation (JXL Remix) hitting #3. This is the result of a special promotion by BMG-UK releasing each week special reissues of Elvis singles that hit #1 in the UK the first time around. A tally of the UK singles chart results follows and therefore a list of all of Elvis #1 hits in the UK ...

All Shook Up (*)
Jailhouse Rock (#1)
One Night (#1)
A Fool Such As I (#2)
It's Now Or Never (#1)
Are You Lonesome Tonight (#2)
Wooden Heart (#2)
Surrender (#2)
His Latest Flame (#3)

She's Not You (#3)
Return To Sender (#5)
Devil In Disguise (#2)
Crying In The Chapel (#2)

The first single All Shook Up wasn't eligible to chart due to the addition of the collectors box.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.

This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.

The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
